Blu-ray comes to Mac (clones)
Apple is on the board of directors of the Blu-ray Disc Association, yet they’ve shown ambivalence, or even contempt, for the format. Steve Jobs even said, “Blu-ray is just a bag of hurt.” With the newly launched Macbook lineup some expected Blu-ray to finally be included in an Apple product, but this wasn’t the case.
If you have been waiting for a Blu-ray-enabled Mac, Psystar may have your answer. They have released the first OS X compatible computer to offer Blu-ray Disc support.
Psystar’s president Rudy Pedraza mocked Jobs’ statement about Blu-ray, retorting, “Blu-ray has already won the format war. Not only is there fully functional and mature support for Blu-ray in other operating systems but you can now rent Blu-ray discs from almost any rental chain. Blu-ray has become pervasive technology that is being widely adopted by consumers everywhere.”
Since Mac is used quite often for video editing, it is ridiculous that they don’t offer Blu-ray Disc yet.
